עלי

I'm a 26 year old African American guy from Baltimore, Maryland. I grew up in the foster care system moving from house to house being in a different persons home almost every year starting at age 3. I never really got to enjoy what it felt like to be a child due to the circumstances I was put in.Throughout my child hood to teenage years I've always had people say how I'd end up dead or in jail or like my father which I never met. My life expectancy was 18 because of my skin color and environment. I didnt know what a path was, I was simply choosing to live day by day. I have acquired knowledge from my foster parents I grew up with to learn how to work and make a living for myself. Now I have made mistakes but who hasn't right? Its about learning from them not to be repetitive and gain experience to better yourself.I tell the group of kids that I mentor, a mistake is a lesson learned to help you eliminate your faults and start over with credit under your belt and go about it a different way.

החלומות והתשוקות שלי

Last year I had a small part as an extra in the Movie Charm City 12 o clock boys. While on set I met some pretty high ranked and interesting people. Someone took some off guard photos of me and said I should really check out the industry for modeling. Now I've had people say it before, but growing up in Baltimore it seems like a pipe dream to achieve.Needless to say I found John Casablancas and started attending classes to learn how to model. I took what I learned and jumped head first into networking and finding resources to help me step into the industry. Since then I have found a part of me I never knew existed. I have energy to become a role model to others and show people in my age range and that grew up in the system that it is possible to follow your dreams.Being a model for me is not just a job, its a lifestyle full of consistent dedication to better yourself and encourage others to be bold beautiful and courageous not only for self worth but to inspire others.

איך אני יכול לעשות שינוי כגיבור האופנה הבא?

My story alone is inspiring but from where I come from internally, physically and mentally, I possess traits of a struggle to get to where I am now in life. People need to hear how I came from pretty much nothing and on my own to where I am now and where I am about to be.This wont just touch the black community but instead all races and ethnicities. Poverty no longer has color, dreams no longer need to be kept inside. Its time to show the world your imagination is possible.
